This a good pressing of The Pleasure Principle - sounds amazing. A classic!
Cedric Sharpley was a fabulous drummer and perfect for this band.

I bought 3 copies of this from 3 different retailers and all are warped noticeably. Sent 2 back and kept the third one as it was less warped than the others. The SQ is very good,a fair amount of crackle initially which improved after a good cleaning. The sleeve and artwork are of good quality. Runouts have the MPO logo and a 2019 pressing date.

Gone through three pressings of this record, bad distortion throughout, especially on Complex, Films and M.E. Bad enough that I've barely bothered listening to side 2, just pack it up and send it back. Just an unlucky album for me I think

A classic Gary Numan Album and for sure the most commercial and most accessible, with the classic "Pop" Single Cars. The album is let down by a poorer B side, which is why I choose Telekon and Dance before it from that era, but definitely a classic Numan album With huge classic songs such as Metal, films and of course Complex.
